On the right side of your rockwork, are those rocks siliconed or somehow secured? They look a little unstable from the pictures point of view, and i would be really worried about that because with all the things that go in a SW tank, if your rocks are not completely stable, it could spell disaster, starting with a smashed tank and flooded floors. You've got some really large round rocks on top or other round rocks.. Hope you've secured them, or you don't plan on having any pistol shrimp, turbo snails, or anything else strong enough to move things around.

Still looks nice though.

You don't need a CO2 reactor for a SW tank. I don't know anyone who uses one. That's usually for freshwater planted tanks.

CO2 is oxygen.. Calcium reactors are different.

Look, this is a CO2 reactor:



This is a calcium reactor:




There is a difference between the two, however, calcium reactors are very good for a reef system, so if you wanted a good reactor to start with, a calcium reactor would be that.

Unless you plan on having a tank full of SPS corals, there is no need for a calcium reactor. And even if you do go to an all SPS tank, a calcium reactor is not necessary. The alternative to a ca reactor is manual 2-part dosing, and again that's only necessary if you have a bunch of SPS corals.
